At the industry level, it’s fascinating to see that all total compensation represents salary and non-salary benefits are not factored into the equation at all. Speaking at the corporate level, Shriram Transport Finance prefers to follow a traditional route, paying all compensation through a salary. If salary dominates total compensation, this suggests that CEO compensation leans less towards the variable portion, which is generally performance-related.
